Abstract

Animations are discussed for a range of geometric dissections. These include a variety of twist-hinged dissections, some swing-hinged dissections, dissections of squares and cubes corresponding to a certain integer identities, folding dissections of multi-level regular polygons, and folding dissections of multi-level polyominoes. Artistic issues pertaining to these dissections and animations are discussed, such as symmetry, synchrony, similarity, minimality, and color patterns. The resulting parade can be found at: http://www.cs.purdue.edu/homes/gnf/parade.html
